Using Flickr to Market Your Small Business

Over in Kennewick Washington, home of the Tri-City Americans, Matt McGee from Small Business SEM writes a piece on how small businesses can market Flickr photos.

Flickr is Yahoo’s shared photo portal, and is mainstream by web users. Considered one of the forerunners in Web 2.0, creative local and small business owners can use this as a way to interact with local consumers.

I did a quick Flickr search for the Oceanaire in Minneapolis. Basically, it shows some people having a decent time. That’s fine, but it doesn’t make me want to visit. I did a Google search, and actually found a Flickr photo set of the Oceanaire in Seattle. This is a different story. Mmmmm… me want seafood… eeep eeep.

The Seattle photo set is a perfect example of Web 2.0 and user-generated content. It wasn’t from the restaurant itself, but from (I’m guessing) a local photographer who really liked the presentations.
